Russia’s Su-57 fighter jet successfully passed the second phase of tests in Syria
MOSCOW, (BM) – The fifth-generation Russian fighter Su-57 successfully passed the second stage of tests in Syria, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, according the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia Valery Gerasimov statement.
He told the foreign military attache that a “re-testing” of the Su-57 was carried out in Syria, “all the planned tasks have been successfully completed,” writes Red Star.
Gerasimov said that Russia does not plan to build up a military group in Syria, there are already enough Russian forces there to effectively assist the Syrian army in the fight against terrorists, RIA Novosti reports.
Additional military police units were attracted, since after the liberation of Zaevfratya and the Turkish operation in Syria, the volume of tasks performed increased, the head of the General Staff said. Attracting additional units is a temporary measure.
Gerasimov said that over a year and a half more than 495 thousand refugees returned to Syria. 1.3 million internally displaced persons returned to places of pre-war residence.
Recall that the Su-57 fighter in real combat operations in Syria fully confirmed all its characteristics.
